On arrival we were greeted by Kelly, who was professional, polite and very informative. She gave us a very welcome cold drink and then explained very clearly how everything worked and gave very specific instructions on how to get to our room.
The room itself, was clean, tidy and functional with a hot shower and a massive Baobab tree outside the front garden.
There is a well lit pathway to the bar/restaurant/pool area. All the staff were happy and helpful.
The evening menu is limited, but what they do serve is tasty and decent sized.
10 out of 10 for breakfast, one of the best I've had in a long time - plenty of choice and even fresh fruit salad, which in the middle of the desert is quite impressive.
No complaints at all, but a suggestion for the rooms is some patio furniture for next time.
10 out of 10 for customer service. A little bit of attention to detail goes a long way.
